[0.15.5][Harkonnen] Centrifuges flicker active while loading

Post by malventano »

A centrifuge that is empty and being loaded will flicker its active animation for one tick each time the loader drops another couple of uranium ore units into it. Centrifuge should probably remain visibly inactive until enough ore is loaded to commence with a cycle.

I kinda liked that!
For me, it was a feature, not a bug.
Something unique for the turbines.

Message received :) I will talk to Albert on some visual feedback from assembly machines, chem-plants and centrifuges when inserters drop stuff into them.

I thought it was kind of a cool bug, but assumed that the single tick flicker must have been something unintended by the devs. Loading animation would be cool, but yeah, that sounds like Pandoras Box alright.

I still see centrifuges flashing — only in the mouseover / open machine views but not in the world. 0.15.9.

Fixed for coming release. Had to move that logics from render to update.

I imagined this as an electrical discharge each time the ore was placed in the machine. It didn't make sense for dumping ore into a centrifuge machine, but it was nonetheless cool and would be great to have other similar features in ways that do make sense!
